The first to make the switch from in-person to virtual was East Iredell Middle School. A system spokesperson said that nearly 60% of students at EIMS are sick or may have been exposed to COVID-19. The school’s transition to remote learning will last through Friday, Sept. 10, when the district will re-evaluate the situation.
Four additional schools are going virtual:
West Iredell Middle School
Lakeshore Middle School
North Iredell High School
Central Elementary School
Iredell-Statesville’s Board of Education voted in early August to make masks optional. This week the Board of Education voted to reinstate the mask requirement.
